    Went and bought me one of those fancy Stihl splitting mauls. Works like I remember a splitting maul working. Nothing amazing that I can tell, but seems to be nicely made. I will say this: If you over strike with this maul, it WILL HURT! It definitely woke me up, lol.

    I've been working up the locust. I did find one piece I'm going to leave for a COLD day.

    If you're going highway speeds on the roads we travel, you deserve to hit a chunk of wood...
    That being said, yes, flat hat boys have little sense of humor.
    Fortunately, they have no business on my roads either. They should be in Cabool, bothering Alan...

    Oh, they're over here, they just don't bother me to much. Troop G headquarters is just a few miles down the road.

    No sir, the old bugger just keeps getting stronger, It's up to almost a hundred psi of compression! I treated it real hard last weak sawing out those slabs. It burned five tanks of gas without a rest, pulling thirty six inches of full comp.

    I agree but I would have to add old Poulans to my list of likes. I mailed out another Stahl today. Only five or six to go.

    Flyinglow and I had a great time today. He liked our collection of saws pretty well especially the 262xp... I got to run his 241, 261, 028, 034, 361, 10mm 044 and 660. I was surprised how much heavier the 9010 is than his 660... The results were close across the board except for I have nothing comparable to the 241 and his Stumpbroke 261 was noticeably snottier than Dad's mostly stock version, which was amplified by Dad's running 3/8" chain and Steve's running .325". All-in-all it was a great day! His ported 044 and my Stumpbroke 372 were VERY close in loaded RPM, with his being a bit faster by about 200rpm. I'd like to dress up the chains and try again. I feel dirty for saying this, but I think I'd rather have the 044, not that my 372 is going ANYWHERE...

    I take it that Jim was in good spirits?

    Jim seemed to be doing good except I could tell his back was bothering him.

    Stumpy was getting the Stihl's down when he quit building saws...
    But...
    Progress was made after your 372 was built too...
    Bwahahahaha!!!!!!!
    The hammer was just stupid fast...
    Like Wiggs' 372...
    Oh, and 3/8 will always be faster on a 50cc that has the nuts to pull it..
    Chain IS the difference maker!!!

    i ran Steves AP-42 lombard this evening, i put the 24" LG husky mount and an aggresive
    skip chain and that old sucker marched right threw HARD 2 year old elm and some cherry
    noodled full bar depth, no overheating, it likes to work hard :)
    alot of these old saws heat up and go to poo ... not this one
    I think it would pull full comp fine...

    More rain here in the Ozarks of Southwest Missouri. Guess the good Lord figured we needed it.
